the story of this proposal to write an editorial on it saying this presents mr. obama with a choice. he can continue driving a hard bargain on political policy terms that would entail using the entitlements until the republicans capitulate with the regard to the sequester or and partial government shutdown or the president could act on his past promises to tacking entitlements and engage in good faith with republicans now so they have no further reason to exploit the quest station. another writes if the house approves the stedges the next budget deadline would occur march 1 when the $1.2 trillion in automatic spending -- host: this comes as the larger proposal of what we have been talking about, headlines you may have seen already, headlines much like those in the baltimore sun that morning says house g.o.p. leaders and you heard our guest jonathan strong talk about the change in strategy to gain support. that's what we're talking about the remainder of our time. hunter, from fort lauderdale, florida. our republican line. go right ahead. caller: good morning. i think what people are missing
